Green Urban Clothing Brand – BrooklyNYC

Today we all like to use everything 100% natural that constitutes Nature, the source of our essential necessities. Not only this, saving nature and environment is a global initiative and one of the steps to move in this direction is to wear 100% natural or green only. This shift in trend from polyester to conventional cotton clothing has forced the designers to produce stylish garment line from 100% natural and conventional cotton fabric, providing the environmentally conscious shopper with more and more eco-friendly choices.

And one such name is BrooklyNYC a renowned green, eco-friendly brand of clothes selling 100% cotton T-shirts. All the clothes manufactured and sold at BrooklyNYC that was launched in the year 2006, are 100% environment friendly or eco-friendly in nature. Reputed as the first Green Urban Clothing Brand, BrooklyNYC uses only non-PVC water based inks for Printing. These inks are environmentally safe and totally organic in nature. Not only this, the company uses recycled material too, such as the fabric made from soda bottles and a new synthetic material made of corn.

First, let’s understand the concept of eco-friendly in the context of garment industry. Well, this term implies to the garments made from 100% natural textiles such as soy, bamboo and organic cotton grown without the use of insecticides or bug killers. The company also trades in garments made of Lycocell or wood-pulp cellulose, Ingeo, and hump making the fabric extremely soft to touch. Not only this, at BrooklyNYC they believe in crafting fair-trade garments paying workers their reasonable dues.

As already mentioned, at BrooklyNYC all the inks used for printing T-Shirts are non-PVC based plastisol inks. The inks normally used to print most synthetic garments are highly toxic in nature. The PVC ink harm humans, especially babies if they even happen to lick the T-Shirts printed in this ink. Also, if this ink is not disposed off properly, it is equally destructive for the environment too. Because of this reason, it is officially banned in most of the environment-conscious places. However, the use of the T-shirts printed with Normal” PVC Plastisol ink is very common in the US, because they are far-more economical than non-PVC inks. Also, these inks suitable for screen printing can be used for mass production of T-shirts, unlike the clothing printed with non-PVC inks, which cost a lot more, but is gaining popularity with time.

The BrooklyNYC green clothing line makes use of non-toxic water-based ink for printing. It is more expensive, both in terms of resources and time, to produce water-based inks. Not only this, it is pretty difficult using these inks to print T-shirts too, However, these inks along with being soft, can be ironed over too. Therefore, at BrooklyNYC they only use water-based inks to make their line of clothing totally Green in true respect. Their clothing line for both men and women consists of unique creative tops for men and women in eye-pleasing styles and vivid colors, produced organically using safe printing methods.
